#tbt: Orgy Concert 3/26/2013

As I was taking a walk this afternoon, Orgy's "Fiction (Dreams In Digital)" played on my iPod and I remembered seeing them two years ago at the Note in West Chester! I remember the day like it was yesterday: two weeks prior to the concert, I won the tickets from the college radio station Christina DJs for. It was right before her show and we were sitting outside the radio room working on homework (the night before: Friday night - Christina always hosts her show on Saturday - we went to see Aaron Carter free of charge... I went along with Christina to be a good friend). The DJ announced if someone called in, they could win two free tickets to see Orgy at the Note.

Orgy, like Twiztid, has been a favorite of mine since middle school. I actually got into the two groups at the same time. I whispered to Christina, "it would be awesome if I could win!" She replied back, "why don't you call? Just walk out the door and call." So, I did and I won the two tickets. I asked Christina if she wanted to go and she came along.

Sadly, my DSLR camera battery died and had to use my cellphone for pictures. My cellphone never took good pictures in low light, especially with motion. Although the pictures aren't the best, I had a blast. I loved the opening bands: My Parasites and another group with Vampires in the name. Davey Suicide (who know plays with Twiztid at some shows... ironically) was pretty good too. He signed the CD I bought from him. However, Orgy was the best. They were making a comeback and they put on a really good show. Even Christina enjoyed it.

It was also nice spending time with Christina and just chilling out in the lounge of the Note. The way the Note was set up, there was a bar area and a dance floor on the bottom level, then on the top floor there was a lounge. The lounge was a balcony overlooking the stage. It was comfortable. However, it was closed and when I was in West Chester in January, it was something else. Orgy was my last concert there and it was such a great memory.






























Although this wasn't from the Orgy concert, this was from when Christina and I went to see Aaron Carter. One of his opening bands - Petrel - was pretty good. The drummer was cute. When I was sitting at the bar while Christina watched Aaron Carter, I saw the drummer. I went over to him, introduced myself and he introduced himself as Nick. We talked for a bit and then I asked if I could get a picture with him. Of course, it was no issue. :)

  1. Huh. That's a coincidence. It was in the past two weeks when I was chatting to a friend about you seeing Aaron Carter perform and how you met him (I didn't mention your name...just referred to you as a friend who'd seen him). It came up in conversation because we were talking about musicians, bands, etc.
